Oh good, misread the tone. I'm patient, I have one free one and one I bought, so next are doubles! I love riding horses and I also love my garden, it's so rewarding. this year it was better than last and next year I want to be better than this. Don't know what and how yet but the shade border and repositioning other bits!!!  Thought the hellebores would add interest. just searching. It's like a dating advert..... I'm desperately seeking ????

Oh your message sounded like I have annoyed you, sorry not my intention. My friends dont like gardening so my only outlet is here or dad to bounce ideas off. I like other peoples views. I do scour around locally. I have tried 6 garden centres in the last 2 weeks searching for hellebores and all I have found is the green flowered ones and the while! I will keep looking. 

 

My my downfall is I like to think about gardening when I can't be in it fiddling. It's my escapism Tonic! ????????????

I'm not finding a red double for less than around £15, is this what you spend?? I suppose I panick incase I loose it, it seems like a lot if it takes an exception or has a mardy.

i speak with you and I'm determined to buy one, then i search and I hiccup at the cost, I put it off then an offer comes and the internal turmoil starts all over again!

I oooh just seen that we can get a further 10% off GW offer prices. That would take the hellebore offer to just under £10 for 5 orientalis ...... Are we thinking project accepting it will take time or a no go!!

......the good guys

Weird! I have 2 at the back on the clay soil and the pride and joy at the front on sandy soil looks like it's dying back, the stems and centre leaves are tiny but look fine, all old and external leaves are brown around the edges and curling.

would it help to cut off some of the stem where it has a neat centre and pot them up and hope, do they root this way? I don't really have the funds to buy treatments, I spent my garden fund this year
